A much needed break this weekend. I’m glad the sun came out so Isla could play mermaids! ☀️

Noah’s had an adventure at this first scout camp this weekend, he’s extremely tired. And so Isla had us all to herself.

How did you spend the sunny Sunday?

💙💚 This weather is just beautiful. I can’t wait to spend more time with nature. Evening walks through natures routes and paddling under the sunshine.

I haven’t seen much of the sunshine this week; I’ve been quite unwell and going to bed early to give myself energy for the next day. I’m hoping it will pass soon, so I can enjoy some sunshine over the weekend.

How has your week been?

🎂 Yesterday we had a very successful family party for Isla’s birthday. 🥳

Isla and I made her watermelon themed cake, we baked scones and a zillion sandwiches. It was so nice to have everyone around, as we haven’t done that for years. I think there was 16 of us in total!

I love decorating the table for an Afternoon Tea. It always looks so pretty. I used the Garden Party in a box from @lucydarlingshop.

All the sandwiches went down a treat. We had cheese, ham, chicken, egg mayo and tuna mayo! I’ve rekindled my love for a cheese & pickle… 

What’s your favourite sandwich?

🌳 I would love to live in the countryside, by vast woodlands & coastal paths. It’s the dream. However, I forget just how much beauty there is just outside my door.

This little woodland, for example, is full of life & only a 30 second walk from my house. I find it calming & I just love taking slow walks through here. Listening to the birds!

I’ve promised myself to get more steps in, and appreciate natures little pockets that I live near. After all, it can only make me appreciate the countryside whenever we do find our dream home.

Do you forget about the pockets of nature near you?

Making memories 🥳

This was Isla’s first family selfie using her birthday present. She loves taking photos and I can see her following in Daddy’s footsteps when she’s older. She’s very creative.

We’ve managed to spread out Isla’s birthday celebrations over an 8 day period. Perfect if you ask me. She’s loved it!

Anyone love taking photos? Of everything? All the time?

And she’s jumping into her birthday like…

💙💗 We had a super fun time at the trampoline park tonight, hot dogs and slushies. Cupcakes and sweets. Then to the park to burn off the sugar high and cool them down a little.

It was lovely to see them all playing and having fun… Isla loved it. I learn so much from her, how to let go and how to have fun. She’s my little ⭐️.

I cannot believe my baby is 10 tomorrow 😭 I want my baby girl back with her diddy feet.

What’s your favourite memory of the newborn stage?

My favourite skies are deep with blue and white fluffy clouds scattered about too. I visualise patterns and shapes in the clouds just for fun… it’s amazing this planet that lives under the sun!

I’m doing my bit to look after the planet; walking where I can, compost, I don’t eat meat or fish, using less water and getting rid of single use plastic.

I want to keep seeing the beautiful views and making cloud patterns and shapes. Do you do that when the sky is full of white fluffy clouds?

3 Important rules for buying a new build home

3 Important rules for buying a new build home

When you’re buying a home, one of the first decisions that you have to make is whether you’re going to buy an older property or a new build. Some people decide to go for an older property because you can usually get a better price if you’re willing to put a bit of work into renovating the place. However, there are a lot of potential problems to watch out for with an older property and if you’re not careful, you could end up buying a money pit. That’s why a lot of people opt to go for a new build because it’s a lot simpler. As soon as the house is built and ready, you can move in without having to make any repairs and renovations. However, buying a new build isn’t always as easy as you think and there are things that can go wrong, so you need to ...

Tell us how wild your child is and win with Muddy Puddles

I found out about a great little survey that Muddy Puddles have open at the moment, they want to find out what children get up to outside, their favourite activities and what makes them happy when exploring the outdoors! I wanted to share it with my readers too. It's a great survey that encourages you to answer it with the children - you cannot predict the responses you will get. VIEW the POST

Survey Reveals UK Parents Experience a Daily ‘Pang’ Of Guilt

Recently an independent survey of 2,000 UK families, commissioned by toy company Little Tikes, reveals that parents are fed up with the lack of quality time spent together, with the average mum and dad experiencing seven pangs of guilt a week! Being too busy or tired to give kids their full attention and working long hours have been named amongst the top guilt triggers. Little Tikes has linked with Olympic Gold Medallist Greg Rutherford to encourage families to ditch the guilt and enjoy the great outdoors this summer with their ‘Little Trikers’ campaign. They’re giving 50 4-in-1 Sports Edition Trikes away to inspire families to join in the sun this summer. Log on now to www.littletikes.co.uk.

Do you know Britain’s favourite drink?

Do you know Britain’s favourite drink?

The British public love nothing more than basking in the summer sunshine, mostly because we very rarely get to see it! It has been in amongst the rain this year that's for sure. You can always tell when the weather is nice - not just because of the glaringly obvious bright yellow things in the sky - but because the beer gardens around the country are usually full, often at lunchtimes but especially from the moment the clock strikes 5pm and workplaces start to empty. Although I do not get the time to do that these days, so it's a nice glass of Pimms for me when the kids go to bed. VIEW the POST

Wish I’d known: first time pregnancy

I wrote a post the other day about pregnancy and it has really got me thinking about what I wish I had known, back then, when I was pregnant with Noah, my first pregnancy. I had a lot of moments afterwards where I said “I wish I had of known that”, I suppose we all have. Those ah-ha moments are often things I tell first time pregnant ladies too.
